|On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly.

The Invisible Man (2000)
The Invisible Man is a sci-fi action comedy that aired on the Sci Fi Channel. The show revolves around Darien Fawkes, convicted on his third strike of breaking and entering, which he committed after climbing countless stories on the outside of an apartment building, and of the attempted molestation of a senior citizen, after the old man living in the top apartment suffered a heart attack and Darien revived him. So, under California law, he is sentenced to life imprisonment without parole. However, his genius brother Kevin is working on a top-secret project for the government, and manages to get him out of prison in exchange for his services as a guinea pig. The goal of the project? An invisible agent, who can turn transparent at will, through the implantation of a synthetic gland in his brain.
The operation is a success, but as a side effect, it causes him to go insane after half an hour of invisibility. There is a miraculous blue liquid, a counter-agent to keep him sane, but it must be administered every six days. After terrorists raid the project to steal the data and kill his brother, Darien is forced to take a job with a shady government organization called "The Agency", sponsored by the United States Department of Fish and Game, and take on a neurotic and paranoid deep cover agent as a partner. But as unsavory as his situation is, he must make good with The Agency in order to keep his sanity and give him a chance to find his brother's killer.
The Invisible Man aired for two seasons, alongside Farscape and Lexx, but was briefly moved to Mondays at 8 as part of Sci Fi's ill-fated "Monday Prime" initiative. It backfired, and I-Man was moved back to Fridays, where it lived out the rest of its days.
